STRONGSVILLE, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Union Home Mortgage (UHM) ranked first in Pennsylvania in terms of loan volume for the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Rural Development’s Single Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program for 2021, improving upon a fourth-place finish in 2020. The 100% financing program helps lenders collaborate with eligible households living in rural areas to make homeownership a reality.
